Car-free month in all tourist areas of Mount Bromo in 2020
Of course, the enactment of this rule does not necessarily have a basis. It aims to honor the celebration of Wulan Kepitu (the seventh month) which is a holy month for the Tengger Tribe.
Car-free month in all tourist areas of Mount Bromo in 2020The Head of the TNBTS Center said when interviewed by a local media that this also had a positive aim of returning the Bromo Mountain ecosystem to simplicity so that natural harmony occurred far from the hustle and bustle of vehicle fumes.
When a car-free month, all types of vehicles may not cross the Tengger Sand Sea and Teletubbies hills. This is certainly good for eliminating pollution or neutralizing the air in the Bromo mountains. Of course, the exceptions are for visitors who use the services of horses, walking, and cycling.
The rules apply at all entrances starting from Cemoro Lawang, Ngadisari Village, Sukapura District, Probolinggo Regency; the entrance to Coban Trisula Jemplang, Malang Regency; and the entrance of Dingklik Penanjakan, Tosari District, Pasuruan Regency.
For information, Wulan Kepitu is a holy month for the Tengger Tribe.
During Wulan Kepitu, the Tengger tribe usually performs full fasting or "puasa mutih".
The goal is to resist temptations and worldly favors and get closer to God.
